DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS UPDATED for B-17, post-DST:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

ALAN ROE`S HITLIST UPDATED November 4:
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

Hi Glenn, NOTE: Increasingly, information about programmes (mostly) and schedules (occasionally) will be found on radio station Facebook pages. I have therefore added with this update links to such pages.

1) Major update to add links to station and programme facebook pages.
2) ~Aggregator - WRN: Added link to new WRN/Babcock pages
3) Belarus - R Belarus: Updated links
4) UK - BBC WS: Updated link to 6 monthly programme schedules (although as of 4 November, these still show A-17 schedules)
Best wishes and 73, (Alan Roe, Nov 4)

Note: this does not imply endorsement of Facebook by gh (gh)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Nov 3 at 2256, CB is still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9666.40, Nov 3 at 2349, Portuguese poor, so Voz MissionÃria has varied even higher. BUT, a few hours later, Nov 4 at 0529, it`s way down to 9664.077v and can be heard varying, vs weaker het from a 9665.00 station, maybe African language, when HFCC doesn`t show anything since 0430-0500 RFI Swahili via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9805, Nov 4 at 1328, wall-of-noise jamming against nothing, as the stupid DentroCuban Jamming Command keeps on it, despite R. Martà having used 9805 only in A-17 and only at 1000-1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9480+, Nov 4 at 0538, centered slightly on hi side but with no precise carrier, heavy buzzroar and very distorted talk, worthy of Cairo, I think, and in fact it is, per HFCC: 0400-0600, 250 kW, 166 degrees from Abis in Swahili (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. Re this: ``GERMANY. 15780-15785-15790, Oct 29 at 1814, DRM noise, presumed Romania or some major station, but the only thing B-17 HFCC listed on 15785 is 100-watt non-direxional BIX FNA in ERL, i.e. as in NDXC/Aoki A-17, bit eXpress, Erlangen, 24 hours. I never expected to hear it and for once wish I had DRM reception. Is it really 24 hours? I give up trying to find it in WRTH --- no major heading under Germany in International Section. It could be buried somewhere in the 14 pages of state-by-state FM National listings. And EiBi, based in Germany, does not even list it at all! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1902, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

Kai Ludwig, Germany, replied: ``Good luck in finding out. Bit express itself no longer exists, as announced at
https://www.bitexpress.de/technik?qt-technik=2#qt-technik

The new Funklust project focusses on content, no word about such technical experiments there (not that I find anything wrong with that).

The transmitter itself should be in the responsibility of Fraunhofer IIS. Again: No word about it at
https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/de/ff/kom/digitaler-rundfunk.html

The only remaining mention is on this page, last updated 2016 if not earlier:
http://drm-forum.de/index.php/drm-verbreitung/drm-verbreitung

Sorry, but I leave anything else to others`` (WORLD OF RADIO 1902)

Then Eike Bierwirth replied Nov 2:

``Glenn, since A-17 lists VoA in Amharic on 15785 at 1800-1900 UTC, I bet you heard the Ethiopian Jamming Command, whether or not VoA was still on A-17 or already on B-17 operation on October 29.

Btw, just a few days before your 15785 log, you posted a link to the
British DX Club visiting Woofferton. Two of the photos showed an actual transmission schedule, including said 15785. Several items on the schedule are elsewhere listed as Dhabayya/UAE, so it seems to include the remote control of that site, too (BH = Dhabayya?? OFF = Woofferton?? this would almost, but not quite, match the usual A-17 schedules, but Babcock sites are known to be switched on short notice, since some of that leaks into HFCC).

Screenshot from Woofferton's control room vs A-17 schedule:

To which I replied, ``Eike, Excellent, detective work! Tnx, Glenn``

Dave Kenny, BDXC-UK replied: ``Well spotted, Eike; On the day we visited Woofferton, 13th October, they were indeed transmitting the Dhabayya frequencies from the UK, because of a problem at Dhabayya. I believe it was due to be the last day of Dhabbaya being covered from Woofferton, although it might have continued for longer. 73 Dave Kenny
BDXC`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 12004.908, Nov 4 at 1314, JBA carrier way off-frequency with trace of modulation, HFCC shown as IBB Biblis, 0630-1800, 100 kW, 105 degrees in Farsi, i.e. Radio Farda (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9575, Nov 4 at 1334, weak signal with YL talk; just as I am listening closer to tell if it`s English, it goes off by 1335*. HFCC shows AIR Bod/Tibetan via Bengaluru until 1330; thus I suspect AIR failed to turn off this transmitter in time and proceeded with the GOS in English which should have been on 9690, unchecked. The Tibetan service also had to be jammed by the ChiCom, but normally with CNR1 in Chinese, or Firedrake, not CRI in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, Nov 3 at 2300, pirate rock music; 2337 usual canned YL ID as Clever Name Radio, rap. Many more logs of:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,38480.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 3 at 2332, R. Chaski, JBA carrier amid resumed RRI DRM, until autocutoff at 2334:18.5*, which is 20.5 seconds later than last catch a tri-nite ago, Oct 31 until 2333:58*, averaging 6.83 seconds later per.

A smoother average, compared to first log of current cycle, which was Oct 1 until 2330:31* --- 33 days ago and 227.5 seconds earlier = 6.894 seconds each, rather than the ~6.72 I was expecting. Perhaps the slippage rate is itself slipping (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9879, Nov 4 at 1322 W&M conversing in Korean, seems like VOA, but horrible modulation and carrier extremely broken up, audible on the LSB, not USB side of this approx. frequency. At 1329 // 9800 and a matching spur on 9721 to its USB, not LSB. Fundamental 9800 is itself in good condition; 1300-1500, 250 kW, 21 degrees from Tinang.

None of them audible, but listed victims during this bihour on 9880 are RRI, CRI and KBS; on 9720 BSKSA maybe, DW via UAE, and from 1430 IBB itself, Khmer via Tinian.

1447 recheck, 9879 much weaker, 9800 with music, but 9720 with something else talking, presumably Tinian as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5980, Nov 3 at 2257, open AM carrier from RRI, but no IS playing until 2259 cut to DRM noise! So after one day of AM during this hour, Nov 2, it`s back to unlisted DRM, and reaudiblizing the Chaski carrier, see PERU (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, Nov 4 at 0524, WRMIBS, in case we are not clear about The Overcomer`s position: ``100% for Trump, since God put him there to bring America down``. Gee, tnx. Would this qualify as treasonous talk? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1902 monitoring: confirmed Fri Nov 3 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9331.40-CUSB, fair S9-S8. Not confirmed Sat Nov 4 at 1550 check the retimed 1531 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB via UTwente --- instead, S Asian music fair signal as expected from CRI Hindi, 100 kW, 174 degrees from Kashgar, East Turkistan yet dominating the frequency in W Europe; really can`t hear any trace of me underneath, but probably fruitlessly on. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Fri Nov 3 at 2000 and 2040 chex, this WRMI is BS // 11825, not // 11580 & 9455, as Harold Frodge had reported WOR Oct 31 after 2030 on 7780, thus implying // those two. Maybe it was an anomaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sat Nov 4 at 1357, WRMI with floating VOA News relay, 1359 ID and back to Oldies. Probably same on 9455, 7780 which were // earlier, on weekends defaulting to Oldies with no Power Hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3264.837, Fri Nov 3 at 2303, open carrier at S5-S6. Must be WBCQ warming up for tonight`s `Allan Weiner Worldwide` an hour later --- but it`s NOT on at 2340 and 2356, nor from 0000 UT Nov 4, just 7490.02v-AM; and 5130.35v-AM, already on at 2357 Nov 3 with Planet IS & ID runup. In his opening, AW says he decided not to bother with `Free Speech is Alive on 32-65`` tonight. Initial rant, soon joined by a caller, is about people`s careers being ruined by accusations of sexual improprieties decades ago, without any due process, i.e. we`re getting communistic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9830, Nov 4 at 0525, VG with gospel huxter in English. B-17 HFCC shows WHRI now registered here daily at 0430-0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065, Nov 4 circa 1320, WEWN English is again here, strong, but not very strong today. Supposed to last until 1500, but 1452 recheck it`s off, and dead air carrier already on 15610, S9+10 with sporadic-E boost, like WWCR 15825 strengthened to S9+30. 5810 WEWN Spanish is still on. By 1501, 15610 is still dead air. These strong 15 MHz signals do correlate with sporadic E MUF reaching even the 50+ MHz hamband this morning across eastern half of US (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 91.7, Nov 4 at 1400 UT, KOSU with `Freakonomics`, all about the worldwide multiplicity of ~7000 languages. Recommended:

Season 7, Episode 9

This week on Freakonomics Radio: there are 7,000 languages spoken on Earth. What are the costs â and benefits â of our modern-day Tower of Babel? Plus: the search for a common language goes back millennia, but so much still gets lost in translation. Stephen J. Dubner asks, "Will technology finally solve that?"

To find out more, check out the podcasts from which this hour was drawn: "Why Donât We All Speak the Same Language? (Earth 2.0 Series)" and "What Would Be the Best Universal Language? (Earth 2.0 Series)."

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Nov 3 at 0607, CB is gone again also from night frequency. Seems they turn it on once a month? Just to show they remain? Conspiracy theory: the Anguilla antenna is still broken, so they hire time on some other site to occupy the frequencies 11775 and 6090 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5980, Nov 2 at 2330, RRI has reverted to AM, after running DRM by mistake for the first four days of B-17 during this English hour, now with classical music. With DRM I was still able to detect the JBA AM carrier from R. Chaski, PerÃ, amid the noise. Now with BFO, I hear a bit of a warble which could be caused by two carriers on slightly different frequencies, but there is no change between 2334 and 2335 when Chaski should be autocutting off. I am afraid the frequencies are too close together, and the warble may have been due to unstable ionospheric propagation from Galbeni (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 7265, Nov 3 at 0626, ``Despacito``, currently a hit but hardly in French, in BBCWS French via Woofferton, and // 6135 about the same; both rudely cut off without announcement at 0629*. Do non-SS people realize what despacito implies?
http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/latin/7873132/despacito-lyrics-translation-english-meaning
Reminds me of the ``slow hand`` song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4102.85 approx., Nov 3 at 0641, the `W` beacon is again JBA, between various blips of other numbers or letters; still audible when I reawaken too soon at 1217, a little stronger than last time so I can get closer to the exact frequency. The Wind Beacon from the southeast California desert (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1902 monitoring: confirmed Thursday November 2 at 2230:30 on WRMI, 5850. Carrier was on before 2229; `Okechobee` song ID at 2230:00. This time, WOR audio follows immediately; recheck circa 2256 still going, good.

Here`s another frequency I didn`t know about, as no one at WRMI tells me, and it`s not on their online sked either:

``7780 WRMI Radio Miami Intâl; 2043-2100+, 10/31; Glenn Hauserâs World of Radio #1901 to 2058:58 brief music; 2059:32 Bob Zanotti WRMI ID; 2100:21 Bro. HyStaircal the OverFondler. SIO+ 353- (Harold Frodge-MI)``

Tuesday at 2030 is when WOR was known to be on 11580 and 9455; I never checked 7780 as it had been BS and still shown as such at 2030, breaking away only at 12-15 M-F for Power Hour, and 15-16 Sundays for religion; 7780 always very weak here, especially in daytime as it`s aimed NE into the Atlantic, and what little signal goes this way off the side is mostly absorbed, much less so higher 11580 on same bearing. There should be other DX programs at 2030 on Mon, Fri and Sun: See the skedgrid labeled 11580 only.

WOR 1902 also confirmed Thu Nov 2 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9331.35v-CUSB, good. Next:
Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sat 0729 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065, Nov 3 at 1400, huge S9+30 signal from WEWN English on new frequency, which had been on B-17 registrations but unheard until today; yesterday before 1500 it was still on 15610. Starting a M&W couple talk show about ``theology of the body``, title per sked, `More 2 Life` and they start discussing DST; but the modulation drops off frequently. Otherwise it`s a clean signal with no spurs detectable.

5810, Nov 3 at 1402, WEWN Spanish is still on night frequency, and modulation is also dropping off here. By 1520 recheck, both have changed to 15610-JBA, and 12050. Appearance of 12065 is presumably at 12-15, and implies another new frequency, 9470 at 09-12, both aimed across North America hoping to reach SE Asia eventually (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1560, Nov 3 at 0635 UT, Vietnamese man talking briefly above the pileup, so that`s KGOW Bellaire TX in its latest format flip (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. JBA trans-Pacific MW carrier search, Nov 3 at 1206-1210 UT: from WSW, i.e. Au/NZ not Japan: 774, 702, 576, 1035; and from west 1098, i.e. Marshall Islands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Sorry, in hurry omitted subject line which must be there (why doesn`t yahoo intercept/warn me about that before sending?) Delete that one. Identical info:

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Nov 2 at 1551 check, Caribbean Beacon / DGS / PMS / University Network is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 15700, Nov 2 at 1400, S9+20 CRI English via CUBA is already (under)modulating! Unlike long delay yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 2 at 0603, XEPPM is still on with drama in Spanish, as nominal closure is around midnight local, now UT -6. Off by recheck at 0614, not only modulation but carrier too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960, Nov 1 at 2336, JBA carrier; also one at 2337 on 4065, as I am hunting for pirates. Anything reported there? Not today, but yesterday on 6960:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,38403.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6035-6040-6045, Nov 1 at 0606, DRM noise blending into Cuban jamming from 6030. This semihour only, RRI Galbeni is scheduled in French to France on 6040-DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4103-CW, Nov 2 at 0615, JBA, W in Morse and various unreadable dits; so weak I can`t pinpoint the frequency exactly. As in previous report, it`s the Wind Beacon in the SE California desert, listed as 4102.3, but I think it was closer to 4103 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1902 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November 1 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490.016v-AM, good. Also confirmed Wed Nov 1 at 2335 the 2330 on WBCQ 9331.44v-CUSB, fair. (Both will be one UT hour later from next week). Next:

** U S A. 15610, Nov 1 at 1804, WEWN English is reactivated, S5-S8, having been unheard on this or night frequency 11520 for about a week.

Checking again because John Figliozzi, Halfmoon NY, asked the DXLD yg at 1736 UT November 1: ``Is it just me or does WEWN have one of the dirtiest transmitters on the bands? Iâm getting distorted audio up to 1300 kHz away from and both sides from nominal. Has anyone complained? Has there been a response?``

They got back on the air, but transmitter still out of order, apparently. The fundamental signal is so weak here that I hear no sign of that. When this transmitter would inboom with sporadic-E help, we could tell it was dirty, but normally not that dirty. See my previous report about contradictory schedules showing 12065 and 9470 at 09-12-15.

Also audible poor-fair Nov 2 at 1434 on 15610 only; and at 1552, much weaker than even more RCC neighbor 15620, Vatican about to conclude relaying Veritas back to Mideast in Filipino from 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 2 at 0609, PPPP is back on from WTWW-1, which had been missing from night as well as day 9475 frequency for several days. 9475 also active at 1605 Nov 2. Dead gospel huxters are really reviving, DGS also on Anguilla; anything to do with Hallowe`en?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Nov 2 at 1400, no signal from KVOH, and still none as constantly monitored until 1440; meanwhile, Cuba dead air on 17730 and the Saudi frequencies on 16m are in well.

Not rechecked until 1550: now it`s on, blasting in with overmodulation distortion during praise music and screaming, and splattering out at least plus/minus 13 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13558, Nov 2 at 1437, JBA traces of CW, nothing else on the HIFER band. LWCA roster lists five just above or below 13558, including one I have heard before, MTI Stone Mountain, GA, but it`s way out of frequency order, 13557.375 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Nov 2 at 1551 check, Caribbean Beacon / DGS / PMS / University Network is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 15700, Nov 2 at 1400, S9+20 CRI English via CUBA is already (under)modulating! Unlike long delay yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 2 at 0603, XEPPM is still on with drama in Spanish, as nominal closure is around midnight local, now UT -6. Off by recheck at 0614, not only modulation but carrier too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960, Nov 1 at 2336, JBA carrier; also one at 2337 on 4065, as I am hunting for pirates. Anything reported there? Not today, but yesterday on 6960:

** ROMANIA. 6035-6040-6045, Nov 1 at 0606, DRM noise blending into Cuban jamming from 6030. This semihour only, RRI Galbeni is scheduled in French to France on 6040-DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4103-CW, Nov 2 at 0615, JBA, W in Morse and various unreadable dits; so weak I can`t pinpoint the frequency exactly. As in previous report, it`s the Wind Beacon in the SE California desert, listed as 4102.3, but I think it was closer to 4103 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610, Nov 1 at 1804, WEWN English is reactivated, S5-S8, having been unheard on this or night frequency 11520 for about a week.

Checking again because John Figliozzi, Halfmoon NY, asked the DXLD yg at 1736 UT November 1: ``Is it just me or does WEWN have one of the dirtiest transmitters on the bands? Iâm getting distorted audio up to 1300 kHz away from and both sides from nominal. Has anyone complained? Has there been a response?``

They got back on the air, but transmitter still out of order, apparently. The fundamental signal is so weak here that I hear no sign of that. When this transmitter would inboom with sporadic-E help, we could tell it was dirty, but normally not that dirty. See my previous report about contradictory schedules showing 12065 and 9470 at 09-12-15.

Also audible poor-fair Nov 2 at 1434 on 15610 only; and at 1552, much weaker than even more RCC neighbor 15620, Vatican about to conclude relaying Veritas back to Mideast in Filipino from 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 2 at 0609, PPPP is back on from WTWW-1, which had been missing from night as well as day 9475 frequency for several days. 9475 also active at 1605 Nov 2. Dead gospel huxters are really reviving, DGS also on Anguilla; anything to do with Hallowe`en?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Nov 2 at 1400, no signal from KVOH, and still none as constantly monitored until 1440; meanwhile, Cuba dead air on 17730 and the Saudi frequencies on 16m are in well.

Not rechecked until 1550: now it`s on, blasting in with overmodulation distortion during praise music and screaming, and splattering out at least plus/minus 13 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13558, Nov 2 at 1437, JBA traces of CW, nothing else on the HIFER band. LWCA roster lists five just above or below 13558, including one I have heard before, MTI Stone Mountain, GA, but it`s way out of frequency order, 13557.375 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
